In 2009, iRead started out based on a simple idea- come with a favourite book of yours and read two paragraphs that appeal to you the most. You get to talk about the book and why you picked the paragraphs you read and you get to question other people about their own choices too.

Since then, iRead has held periodically, starting out at the ThisDay Media Center, The Palms Mall, Lekki, in September 2009 before berthing at the DADA stores HQ at 95 Bode Thomas Street, Surulere, Lagos.

The event has now evolved into a social gathering of creative thinkers, authors, and book lovers convened periodically to discuss books, the creative process that produces them and the social issues they address.

On this blog, iRead is a never ending event…share paragraphs from your favourite books, review the books and discuss them with friends, let’s enjoy books together.
